Ohhhhhhhhhhh . . . . there she is (meaning ROYAL HIGHNESS) in all her EXQUISITE beauty!! :) My favorite rose to put in a vase. Along with her delectable fragrance she's one of the reasons I say, "MAKE MINE A HYBRID TEA." Here in my semi-arid climate she's easy as pie to grow organically. Smooooooooookin' Hot!!

Thanks so much, Carrie, for sharing yours -- especially so since I won't see blooms on mine until June. :)

Take good care!!

Hi, Carol! :) The memory of scent is very fleeting so it will be hard for me to describe ROYAL HIGHNESS'S fragrance as well as I could if I had a bloom right here. The best I can do since I haven't smelled one of her blooms since Sept.? of last year would be to say her fragrance is a PURE (not cloying -- thank goodness!) sweet rose with a hint of powder perhaps. :) Hopefully, Carrie, can bring in a bloom and describe her fragrance for you.

Oh!!! That fragrance sounds wonderful!!! I thought I had looked into that one years ago and had read that it had a tea fragrance (which I don't like). So I passed on it. But the smell you describe sounds perfect!!

Went up for another look - amazingly beautiful!!
